Raku Fired Chicken

Approximate size L-16cm W-8cm H-10cm

This foraging Chicken is hand made using the pinch tecnique. Made from stoneware clay in my Dorset garden workshop and Raku fired in my outdoor Raku Kiln.

Raku is a rapid firing, adapted from an ancient Japanise firing tecnique.
A group of approximatly five pieces are placed in a small gas fired kiln and fired over an hour to 1000 degreese celcious. Each piece is then individually taken out of the kiln red hot and placed in a bin of wood shavings which instantly combust. The actual finish on each piece is then down to careful timing, length of time in the air, how rapidly they are covered up, how much oxygen is in the bin, and different conbustables all give each piece its own character. Once cooled a layer of black soot is then removed using wire wool to reveal the beautiful crackles and colours beneith. 
PLEASE NOTE: RAKU IS NOT FROST PROOF SO NOT SUITABLE FOR KEEPING OUTDOORS
